Conclusions: Only a small number of adolescents from Greece traveling abroad seek pretravel counseling. We found significant gaps in typhoid fever and rabies vaccinations of adolescents traveling to endemic areas. We also found gaps in prescription of malaria chemoprophylaxis for those traveling to high-risk areas. There is a need to develop communication strategies to access adolescent travelers and improve appropriate vaccination and use of malaria chemoprophylaxis.

Publication date: Available online 14 April 2018 Source:Veterinary Microbiology Author(s): Roh Jae-Hee, Kang Min Duck viral hepatitis type I is a rapidly spreading infection lethal in young ducklings, caused by the duck hepatitis A virus (DHAV). Vaccination of breeder ducks is a common practice to control DHAV. However, maintaining proper maternal antibody levels in large flocks is difficult. Therefore, a simple vaccination strategy that can induces stable high antibody levels through mass vaccination is desirable. We evaluated a DHAV vaccination strategy for breeder ducks involving oral administration under field conditi...

Publication date: June 2018 Source:Antiviral Research, Volume 154 Author(s): Wang Jiang, Fawad Muhammad, Pengjuan Ma, Xiyu Liu, Gang Long Hepatitis A virus (HAV) infection remains a major cause of acute hepatitis worldwide and even leads to fulminant hepatitis. For screening antivirals against HAV in vitro, we develop a cell-based fluorescent reporter system named Huh-7.5.1-GA, in which HAV infection is visualized by green fluorescence protein (GFP) translocation from the cytosol into the nucleus. The reliability of Huh-7.5.1-GA for antiviral studies is validated by IFN-α, a known inhibitor of HAV replication, which...

Abstract Typical recreational water risk to swimmers is assessed using epidemiologically derived correlations by means of fecal indicator bacteria (FIB). It has been documented that concentrations of FIB do not necessarily correlate well with protozoa and viral pathogens, which pose an actual threat of illness and thus sometimes may not adequately assess the overall microbial risks from water resources. Many of the known pathogens have dose-response relationships; however, measuring water quality for all possible pathogens is impossible. In consideration of a typical freshwater receiving secondarily treated efflue...

Abstract Hepatitis A virus (HAV) infection remains a major cause of acute hepatitis worldwide and even leads to fulminant hepatitis. For screening antivirals against HAV in vitro, we develop a cell-based fluorescent reporter system named Huh-7.5.1-GA, in which HAV infection is visualized by green fluorescence protein (GFP) translocation from the cytosol into the nucleus. The reliability of Huh-7.5.1-GA for antiviral studies is validated by IFN-α, a known inhibitor of HAV replication, which impedes GFP translocation. Utilizing this in-vitro reporter system, we find that sofosbuvir, an FDA approved prodrug for...
